Ever wondered what dinosaurs ate? How can we find out?
For most people, the idea of finding old poo is disgusting. And the idea of dissecting it and sorting through it is even worse! But this is exactly what some palaeontologists (people who study fossils) do. Poos are called ‘coprolites’ by palaeontologists and they can provide loads of evidence to help us understand what dinosaurs ate.
Come and excavate a salt dough ‘coprolite’ and see if you can identify what your dinosaur ate. Please be aware that the 'coprolites' are made with wheat flour.
Don't forget to check out whats on at the other University of Cambridge Museums over the summer.
